From social opportunities and relationship building, hitting up local games, easy sports and other fun activities in your area can be a fantastic way to help an elderly friend or family member get some exercise and mental stimulation – as well as getting out and having some fun, of course. There’s more to life than cups of tea, after all!

When more energetic games and activities like skating or five-a-side just aren’t practical during those golden years, don’t resign seniors to sitting around waiting on the next cuppa or new TV show – there are still plenty of ways to play, no matter how old you are.

Worthing Pier

Head for a gentle walk down Worthing Pier and take in the views from the chalk cliffs beyond Brighton in the east to the beautiful beaches of the west. You can keep up to date looking at the new developments of apartments that pop up and see how much Worthing has changed over the years. Looking past Worthing itself you can see the rolling hills of the South Downs National Park.

There is amazing artwork that runs along the length of the pier, you can watch the fisherman trying to catch their tea, or simply sit and watch the world go by while enjoying a delicious ice cream.

There is a traditional amusement arcade on the pier so save up your pennies and play the assortment of games inside.

At the end of the pier you will find Perch on the Pier, a popular restaurant with great food and stunning panoramic views of the sea.
